Easybakeware.com customers notified of security concern

When easybakeware.com customers started contacting the company to report unauthorized charges on their credit cards or debit cards from other merchants during the month of September, the Connecticut-based company instructed its Microsoft Gold Level e-commerce service provider/data center to investigate. They also hired an independent security consultant, but neither the consultant nor service provider reportedly found any evidence of a security breach.

With no confirmation of a breach but in light of the fact that 35 customers had reported problems, the company decided to alert its customers to a possible problem, including 71 New Hampshire residents. The company also reported the situation to the FBI and instructed its e-commerce service provider to remove the customer database from any network or internet connection.
